Terim also visited Milan’s facilities, where he once worked, and met up with his friend, now colleague, Gennaro Gattuso. The Turkish manager received a warm welcome as he made his way around the premise. The two were seeing chatting and having a good time as they discussed a variety of topics.

Gattuso had some nice words to say about his friend, who was his boss at one point when Fatih was the manager of Milan back in 2001;

“Fatih Terim is a very experienced and successful manager. He’s a man’s man. His communication and dialogue with players is different. He always pushed us, did his best to push us to succeed. He’s someone who worked for football, gave everything for football.”

Fatih Terim gave his team two days off after thrashing Karabukspor 7-0 on Saturday.
